Step up your connected experience with a high performance switch from Pakedge, the 2013, 2014 and 2015 CEPro Brand Leader for networking.
The Pakedge SE-18 unmanaged switch is designed to be used as a main switch in a medium sized network or as an edge switch downstream of a main or a managed switch in a medium to large network. Designed for use in multimedia and AV networks, the SE-18 employs 16 gigabit (10/100/1000) ports for high traffic throughput, while minimizing lag and latency. It also employs 2 fiber optic ports for high speed switch to switch traffic transport. The SE-18’s plug and play ports allow for easy connectivity with no setup or configuration required.

Superior Switches Designed for A/V
Pakedge Switches bring out the true performance of your connected devices. Combining features utilized by enterprise networks with a suite of features optimized for A/V devices, Pakedge switches are designed from the ground-up as the perfect complement to an A/V system – or the perfect way to power any existing network.
High performance switches start with the core. The engines powering Pakedge switches are enterprise grade high performance processors using switch on a chip (SoC) technology. Network processors are optimized to process AV network traffic flows at high speeds. They reduce the load on other system components by taking on many of the packet-based communications maintenance tasks such as general TCP processing, network address translation and some encryption/decryption tasks. AV Traffic management is a key function of the switch and the chipset is the heart of that functionality. A high performance chipset is critical to fast and accurate switching capabilities.
Easy Network Segmentation for Performance
Pakedge Zones simplify VLANs for A/V networks by breaking them into six subnetworks: management, voice, audio/video, automation, data and guest. Network ports on routers and switches under these subnetworks are color-coded for easy identification. SX-Series switches make Pakedge Zones even easier with Zone Wizard and Zone Template technology. The Zone Wizard offers easy drag-and-drop Zone configuration, while Zone Templates allow users to choose from a series of preconfigured templates chosen based on industry best practices for optimized network performance.
FlexPower switches are designed to allow users unparalleled flexibility of installation. Designed to be powered either by PoE+ or its included AC adapter and able to provide PoE power to connected devices, FlexPower switches allow users an easy solution for nearly any installation scenario.
PoE powered switches provide users with portability and versatility – particularly in retrofit applications. These switches can receive power from a PoE switch in locations where easy access to wall plugs is hard to find.
An often overlooked, but incredibly important aspect of switches in AV environments is sound. Pakedge switches are designed for silent or near-silent performance – allowing them to be the backbone of your AV network in the most noise-sensitive areas such as conference rooms and home theaters.
A truly luxurious home deserves the look and feel of devices designed from the ground-up with class in mind. Elegant design, high-quality materials, and cool blue LEDs give Pakedge switches a high-end A/V look and feel. Because of this focus on design, Pakedge Switches fit perfectly alongside any A/V equipment in a rack.
